Not only did the 20-year-old singer relaunch his official website, DavidArchuleta.com, but he’s also opening up about what he’s hoping to accomplish this year.
David shared with the Salt Lake Tribune, “The goal this year is to take the time I need to know what I want to become. I want to make my voice come through more. I want to do songs that are more vocally driven, so I can be emotional.”
He added, “Iâ€™ve been taking time. I really appreciate the patience the fans have shown.”
David will also be performing at the Reebok 2011 Heroes Celebrity Baseball Game in Frisco, Texas on July 9th AND the 2011 Constitution Fair in Gilbert, AZ in September.
The 20-year-old singer took some time to answer a couple questions from fans in a video blog.
“I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of the local Indonesian artists that will be performing,” David said, “I know it’s a well-known event for teenagers and I appreciate that it’s a positive thing for teenagers. I like to be a part of positive things for teenagers.
When asked what he thought about Indonesian girls, David laughed and said, “I haven’t gotten to know a whole lot about Indonesian girls but I hope to get to know more of them during my visit.”
He then added, “And not just the girls but all my fans and Indonesia itself.”
Ultimately, David said his main purpose coming to Indonesia is to meet his fans and inspire teens to have the confidence to perform and pursue music.
“I want to showcase the hidden talents and let them not be afraid to be in the spotlight,” he said, “I hope I can be a testament that there’s a way to bring out those talents inside of you and what you love to do.”
